Background: VISNEWS filmed President Syngman Rhee conferring the Republic of Korea Cultural medal on Admiral Felix B. Stump - former commander, United States Forces, Pacific, and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Freedoms Foundation - at Kyungmu Dai Presidential Palace, Seoul. May 25.
The Korean award was made for Admiral Stump's efforts to rally American opinion against recognition of Communist China, and his campaign for strengthening "democracy's defences".
Admiral Stump presented the Freedoms Foundation Freedom Leadership Award - an inscribed plaque - to the President at the same ceremony, at which Mrs. Stump was present.
The Freedoms Foundation presents its awards annually to individuals, organizations and schools helping to bring about a better understanding of the American way of life.
